Interview with Emily M. Danforth (Plain Bad Heroines Author)

In the first of  hopefully many new Bloody Book Clubs, and to coincide with World Book Day, a bonus episode interview with the author of Plain Bad Heroines, Emily M. Danforth (The Miseducation of Cameron Post). Flo and Clara, two impressionable students, are obsessed with each other and with a daring young writer named Mary MacLane, the author of a scandalous bestselling memoir. To show their devotion to Mary, the girls establish their own private club and call it the Plain Bad Heroine Society. Described by its author as "Picnic at Hanging Rock + The Blair Witch Project x lesbians". We discuss Emily's love of horror, the films that inspired this book, Mary MacLane, unrealiable narrators, the burden of likeability and so much more. This interview is totally SPOILER-FREE. Plain Bad Heroines is out now in the UK. ***The Final Girls are a UK-based film collective exploring the intersections of horror film and feminism.Find out more about our projects here: thefinalgirls.co.ukFollow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
